What is the history and current status of industrial microwave
The usefulness of microwaves for cooking was purportedly discovered by Percy Le Baron Spencer in 1945 when some candy in his pocket melted while he was working with the radar equipment. Microwave processing on a commercial scale was, however, only begun in early 1960s. Lately, this technology has been successfully applied to many industrial processes; such as drying, tempering, cooking and pasteurization. Due to the advantageous features that cannot be found in the conventional methods, microwave processing has gained more and more acceptances by many industries in industrialize countries. In South East Asia, its applications are mainly limited to domestic appliances. We are the first to introduce an industrial version to this region.
How fast can I process my product with the industrial microwave
As a rough guide, for examples:
How do industries normally define moisture content in their
Latex foam, textile, paper, wood and many industries usually adopt the dry basis definition. This definition is also termed as "moisture percentage regain" in the textile and paper industries. On the other hand, industry such as food mostly adheres to the wet basis definition.

What kind of maintenance do the industrial microwave systems
The only moving parts in our system are conveyor belt, electric motor and fans. Others are electrical and electronic components rarely need any repair. However, like any other expendable items, the magnetron tubes may need to be replaced after a long period of usage (easily more than 3,000 hours). Other maintenance work includes periodical checks for debris built-ups inside the applicators, ventilation and cooling systems. By following a correct operating and maintenance procedure, our industrial microwave system will provide you years of trouble-free operation.
How much energy is consumed by the industrial microwave system?
What products or applications are practical with industrial
Do I need special protective clothing for operating the industrial
No. A properly maintained system is perfectly safe to operate without any special protective clothing.
What are the possible effects that may result from microwave
Microwave is NOT ionizing radiation. It should not be confused with the much more energetic ionizing radiation like x-ray or radioactive radiation. Therefore, the main effect of microwave exposure would be heating of tissue and thus you may be able to feel the leakage if there is any. In fact, a great deal of research has been ongoing in recent years, showing that controlled heating with microwave energy at 2450MHz have therapeutic effects and can be used for treating a variety of ailments. American National Standards Institute (the ANSI C95.1 standard) states that whole-body exposure of 10 mW/ cm2 is safe for unlimited period of time under normal conditions. Comparing with heat loaded onto the body during sunbathing (somewhere between 10 and 60mW/ cm2), this is still a very conservative level.
Are industrial microwave systems re-locatable?
Yes. The industrial microwave systems can be dismantled into modules and re-assembled after relocation.
